Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Will Start Differently than Previous Titles

Assassin's Creed Syndicate

Since the big announcement yesterday, fans have been clamoring for any piece of information they can about the new Assassin’s Creed.

Luckily for them, in an interview with Ubiblog, audio director Lydia Andrew gave them a big glimpse into how the game and story will begin.

“Because the game starts outside London, you reach London on the train with the characters and you see it with them for the first time. So that is a nice moment of revelation and kind of seeing the city through their eyes as well. [From a narrative standpoint] it allows us then to grow their experiences, grow their relationship. They discover the city and at the same time the player is doing all those things, too. They’re not starting from the point of view of being locals or experts.”

This definitely sets it apart from previous Assassin’s Creed game where the protagonist is already in the middle of the action. This time Jacob and his sister Evie won’t be familiar with their surroundings.

It feels like a nice change of pace and lends itself to the idea that this new Assassin’s Creed will be a somewhat fresh start for the franchise.

Not only will we be experiencing the environment along with the main characters we’ll also be going right along with them as they climb to the top of the gang wars in London.  Fighting their way to the Templars, to take them down for good.

“When Jacob and Evie arrive in London, the Templars are winning. They control all the key aspects of London. You have to remember back then London was the biggest center of humanity, with a quarter of the world’s population living there, and the Templars were on top of every part of that city.”

The more details Ubisoft releases about Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the better it starts to sound. So keep an eye on SegmentNext for more details as they arrive!
